Just an update on what happened with me and the baby today. Well nothing happened to the baby apparently, just me:) I woke up this morning and had some spotting, something that you do not want to see when you are pregnant is that. Your mind can wander in so many different directions. I called my Dr. and spoke with a nurse, and they got me in right away, to see if they could detect the baby's heartbeat. Todd met me there and the nurse was SO wonderful. She got the heartbeat right away! Between the 160s-170s. It is very normal for a woman to spot during pregnancy, as long as it is not gushing red for an extended period of time, followed by severe cramping. 1 in 5 women spot during their pregnancy, this was something I was aware of, but when it happened to me, I just got frantic.
I immediately began to cry when she found the heartbeat, because we had not had our appointment to hear it yet, so it was a relief and such a joy that we were hearing our baby's heartbeat for the first time! Just not in the circumstances I would have imagined. Which, made me realize that I am not in control of this baby, God is. I can only do so much to make sure my body is healthy, the rest is up to the Big Guy. It was a very emotional day, with the lowest of lows followed by the highest of highs.
